Register for Service DAWGS Day and Habitat for Humanity

Service DAWGS Day is an annual day of service that engages over 500 volunteers in community service activities within the local community. On Service DAWGS Day, students and volunteers arrive at a central campus location for a brief orientation and light breakfast before being transported to one of over 35 community partner locations to perform three hours of community service. At around lunch time, students are transported back to campus for lunch and other activities. Breakfast, lunch, transportation, and a t-shirt are provided to volunteers free of charge!
